The Crispian Scully Award

The Oral and Dental Research Trust is pleased to announce the Crispian Scully Research Award

This new award, in memory of Crispian Scully CBE, a long-standing Trustee of the Oral and Dental Research Trust (ODRT) and eminent clinical academic, is to support research in Special Care Dentistry – a field of oral healthcare which Professor Scully helped advance in many, different ways and championed in his illustrious career.

Applications for the Crispian Scully Award, which the ODRT hopes to be able to award on an annual basis, are being sought to support a programme of research into the provision and outcome(s) of Special Care Dentistry in patients of all ages.

One grant is available in 2019 to dental healthcare professionals and scientists in the UK to a maximum value of £5,000. The award is not intended to cover salary costs of applicants, as a ‘top-up’ to an existing award, or to fund attendance at scientific meetings.

Applications, which should be structured, must include:

  • No more than two sides of A4 setting out the background, purpose and details of the proposed programme of research
  • Detail and justification for the proposed expenditure, included in the 2 side application
  • A concluding, 200-word maximum, impact statement indicating the ways in which the proposed research is anticipated to benefit patients and/or the public. This can be additional to the 2 A4 sides.

Completed applications should be submitted electronically to the Administrative Officer of the ODRT, Mrs Pam Howson, by 30th November 2019. The receipt of applications will be acknowledged. Should applicants be unable to provide acknowledgement of receipt of their application, the ODRT will not accept that submission has been made.

The ODRT is an NIHR non-commercial partner. As such studies funded by the ODRT are eligible for consideration for inclusion onto the NIHR Portfolio.

The recipient(s) of the ODRT Crispian Scully Award will be announced during the annual meeting of the British Society for Oral and Dental Research (BSODR).

The ODRT Crispian Scully Award is supported by ODRT.
